At Gartner CIO Leadership Forum 2019, we have three tracks dedicated to your priorities:



Think Product

In an era of constant change, customers’ wants, needs and expectations are constantly evolving. To succeed, you must put customer experience front and center in all of your strategies. To improve what you deliver again and again, CIOs must ditch the traditional IT project-focused mindset in favor of an IT product-focused approach.


In this track, you learn how to make this change successfully, along with all of the processes, roles, operating models, methodologies and investments that will need to be altered as a result.

Innovate Digital 

Everyone’s a technologist, but it’s still up to you to do the hard work: Create and execute digital strategy, leverage emerging ecosystems, accelerate the pace of automation and co-create new digital business models with fellow C-suite stakeholders.


In this track, you learn how to develop disruptive digital strategies, balance revenue-generating opportunities with cost optimization initiatives, fully embrace and integrate technologies such as artificial intelligence, and successfully manage critical digital business risk factors.

Shape Culture 

In today’s rapid-change environment, culture is often an inhibitor to growth. Without a purposeful focus on individuals, teams and culture, organizations will not survive. As CIO, you must use culture to accelerate change, attract and nurture the right talent, and help people embrace the “new normal.”


In this track, you get the culture hacks you need to build an organization grounded in innovation and growth mindsets, cultivate a diverse and inclusive organization, and develop the future of the workforce — with humans and learning machines working together seamlessly.
